Here’s to a safe and peaceful holiday. Let’s hope the sun shines and whatever you do, have a really enjoyable time.
It’s been a busy year, with so many memories. We would like to wish our Primary 7’s all the very best for their time at the academy, and to all of the staff who have left us this year, we wish them all the very best for their future.
For those of you remaining, or joining us after the summer break, we look forward to welcoming you all back on Tuesday 20th August at 9:00am prompt!!
We were very lucky to have a visit from Sensatheraplay on Tuesday. Groups of children were welcomed into the hall which had been transformed into a magical wonder of lights and sounds. Blackout pods enabled the children to enjoy the peace and tranquility, and a few of the staff were seen to disappear into the pods also!!! A fantastic resource which we hope to invite back again.
Our Parent Council entered us into the above event, and they are delighted to inform us all that South Lodge Primary has been selected as a finalist.
Our challenge is to raise as much money, as a school as possible, for Cash For Kids, between 9am Monday 10th May 2019 and 12 noon Friday 14th June 2019. Cash for Kids will provide cash prizes for the 6 schools who have raised the most money.
Letters will be coming home to explain the fun activities they have planned for us.
We have had so much help from Cash For Kids in the past, it would be great to continue to support them and the school.
We are holding our annual Easter Egg Design Competition on Wednesday 3rd April. We are looking forward to seeing this year’s fabulous creations! Please do not bring them into school until Wednesday morning, as we have nowhere to store them safely.
Here is a reminder of last year’ winning entries to help your creative thinking.
We had our very first Enrichment Day yesterday, and what a fantastic day it was. Enrichment Days provide pupils with an opportunity to engage in a range of activities that do not easily fit into their regular timetable. They also allow children to broaden and enrich skills that they might never have the chance to experience before.
The children spent the afternoon participating in an activity of their choosing, and everyone came away feeling great, including staff and parent helpers. The children participated in art, golf, cycling, dance, hair and beauty, animation, sewing, baking, board games and manga art, most of which the children had had no experience with before.
We would like to thank everyone who gave up their time to come in and offer their expertise, it was very much appreciated. We are already looking forward to planning next term’s Enrichment Day!
Here are a few photos of our fun-filled Enrichment Day, with more to follow.
